I would LOVE to see a tutorial on programming gait sequences.

I have been working on my humanoid biped for quite some time now but I just cant get it stable.
From what I have read Inverse Kinematics is the way to go. Being an Engineering/Comp Science student I understand the theorey behind it but I'm struggling with its implementation.

Hi

I want a tutorial on aesthetics and spray painting that would be good because I want to put camo markings on my spy robot

Spykid99

I was wondering how to paint camo on the bahx bot.  I'm glad you brought this up.  Is there a template and instructions out there somewhere?

yes they are fairly similar, they may each have a few differences but learn one and the other will pretty much be in your head.

I love all your existing tutorials. I have been lurking on this site for about a week now and can't stop reading your tutorials. They are very easy to follow. So here are my request:

Google Sketchup + Sketchy Physics tutorial - I can't find any good video tutorials for what seems to be an excellent free tool. I have only found one text tutorial and it's pretty lame. It would be nice if someone created either a text or video tutorial (with verbal instructions instead of fuzzy text in the video and background music). Take into account that not everyone has used sketchup on a daily basis and could use step by step help learning the basic sketchup lessons while also learning sketchy physics lessons.

How do wet vacuums work? - There is plenty of information about how vacuum cleaners work but I can't seem to find anything about how to suck up a liquid. This could be used for building subs and also bots like scuba roomba. I want to make a bot that cleans the grout lines in my kitchen floor so my wife does not have to get on her knees with a toothbrush.

some sucker vacuums work by having a motor axle with a tri-wing blade attached in an enclosed areawith input on one side and output on the other and it pushes the water from one side to the other.

admin is there any way that you could make it so you can search profiles, like type dellagd in the search box and it show a link to my profile?

I believe that you should also make another robot tutorial for people who have finished the 50 dollar robot and then think "What now?" But let this one be a little more challenging and don't hold everybodies hand like you did in the 50 dollar robot some people may be ready to start gradually building on their own yet with guidance. But I voted for voice recognition, that would be so cool.

there are a few robot tutorials in the "member tutorials" section of the site that are a little more complicated than the $50 robot but still provide programming and excellent instructions, for example: airman00's 3 in 1 robot.

Also, on the index page of the $50 robot tutorial, there's a list of links below.The first few are of the tutorial, but then below theree are bonus projects one could do (I think there's sonar, bootloader, ect...)

I'm curios about what program does Admin use for CAD. And of course, it'd be great to have a tutorial about it.

A tutorial on how to make a robot with IC's. Something simpler like a line following robot.

there are already several on this site, ake for example admins $50 robot.
point the photoresistors at the ground and you have a line follower.
have a brouse through the member tutorials, there is at least one line follower.
like airman00s' 3 in 1 robot. it follows lines fine.

what more is there? there is already an rc tutorial, and then there is just the matter of hooking up a solar circuit to the battery leads... not much at all...
it just so happens my school is doing this at the moment (solar car race) ;D
